Production recently wrapped on SNOOP DOGG’S HOOD OF HORROR, a new genre anthology with an urban hiphop spin. The screenplay comes courtesy of 2001 MANIACS co-writers Tim Sullivan and Chris Kobin, as well as Jacob Hair and Jonathan McHugh, the latter of whom originated the project.

HOOD OF HORROR, directed by Stacy (THE LAST SUPPER) Title, follows in the tradition of TALES FROM THE CRYPT and TALES FROM THE HOOD, highlighting dark and grisly stories with surprise twists at the end. The movie’s offbeat cast includes Ernie (THE CROW) Hudson, STAR WARS vet Billy Dee Williams, Jason (SEINFELD) Alexander (!), Lin (2001 MANIACS) Shaye and DEVIL’S REJECTS bounty hunters Danny Trejo and Diamond Dallas Page; Snoop Dogg, who previously starred in the title role of 2001’s BONES (pictured), toplines HOOD as its diabolical MC.

“This is our homage to EC Comics, but with a ghetto twist,” Sullivan tells Fango; he produced HOOD with BloodWorks’ Christopher Tuffin, McHugh, Martin Shore and Snoopadelic’s Ted Chung. Vincent (ROTTWEILER) Guastini, who tackled the movie’s FX duties, describes HOOD as “an ambitious project that has all kinds of creatures, zombies and wild makeup effects.”

When Dogg was first approached with the idea for HOOD, the rapper was excited about the film’s franchise potential. “Who better to run the Hood of Horror than Snoop?” says Shore, whose company Social Capital financed the picture. “There is no one else of his caliber who could have possibly pulled this off as convincingly.” As expected, the film’s soundtrack will boast a number of major, as well as up-and-coming, rap producers and performers.

FANGORIA exclusively visited the set of SNOOP DOGG’S HOOD OF HORROR for an all-night shoot. Watch for more HOOD news on this website in the weeks ahead.
